The Nestlé Institute of Health Sciences:
from genetics to diet & lifestyle research
The Nestlé Institute of Health Sciences has a mission: develop scientific methods to improve health through nutrition. This scientific research centre gives Nestlé Health Science the most advanced information and processes in nutrition and diagnostic science. We strongly believe that the food we consume is the single largest influence on our health. Gaining greater understanding of nutrition paves the way for developing nutritional therapies aimed at managing health conditions. Developing the tools and methods to study the interactions of microdata — genes, proteins, metabolites, single nutrients — with macrodata — diet, activity, lifestyle — will provide insight and targets for future nutritional and lifestyle interventions.
